South Africa Food Guide: 10 Bar food Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Northern Cape

May 28, 2020 Roseanne Arnett

Find out what Bar restaurants to try in Northern Cape. The Northern Cape (Afrikaans: Noord-Kaap; Tswana: Kapa Bokone) is the largest and most sparsely populated province of South Africa. It was created in 1994 when the Cape Province was split up. Its capital is Kimberley. It includes the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park, part of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, an international park shared with Botswana. It also includes the Augrabies Falls and the diamond mining regions in Kimberley and Alexander Bay. The Namaqualand region in the west is famous for its Namaqualand daisies. The southern towns of De Aar and Colesberg, in the Great Karoo, are major transport nodes between Johannesburg, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. In the northeast, Kuruman is known as a mission station and also for its artesian spring, the Eye of Kuruman. The Orange River flows through the province, forming the borders with the Free State in the southeast and with Namibia to the northwest. The river is also used to irrigate the many vineyards in the arid region near Upington.

Del Rio Spur Steak Ranch

Spoil your family & eat out at Del Rio Spur, we are the best steakhouse & burger restaurant in Kuruman. Bring along your kids for some great tasting food & dessert from our famous Spur menu.

Reviewed By dreyern74

Last week we attended the Del Rio Spur in Kuruman that we have frequently visited in the past. They have improved quite a bit but this experience was Very Disappointing. It was a Monday and the Burger Special day, thus the plave was very full. The waiters were out of their comfort zone due to being to few on shift and service was poor. We were 4 adults with 2 babies and one todler and our starters were burnt(crumbed mushrooms) and we left after 3 hours without enjoying our meal as we have not received it yet. They gave it as a take-away but they will NOT see us soon due to this shocking poor food and poor service experience.Dear dreyern74,Thank you for taking the time to review our Del Rio Spur Restaurant. We're so sorry to hear that this was your experience. That certainly doesn't sound like the level of service or food quality we pride ourselves on. If you wouldn't mind forwarding this review on, together with your contact details to [email protected] We'd really like the opportunity to discuss this further with you and hopefully turn it around. Kind regards, Spur Steak Ranches

Our breakfasts were cold and we were the only ones in the restaurant. The bacon was limp (not crispy as promised as we saw it cooked in a microwave), the banana overcooked and the eggs and toast cold. At least the coffee was hot.We complained to the manager who listened and then talked to the kitchen staff. He didn't ask what he could do to improve the situation or offer a replacement meal. The owner came over a few minutes later and he was just as useless. We were presented with the bill (with no discount) and the waitress then asked if we wanted our change - as if we were going to leave a tip! I'd avoid this restaurant unless you enjoy being disappointed.Dear AndrewD,Thank you for taking the time to review our Desert Moon Spur restaurant.

O'Hagans Irish Pub

Reviewed By skips192

I rated this 1 star because there isn’t an option for 0 stars. The restaurant/pub area is un-inviting and the wait staff were more occupied with their friends. I ordered a beer from the bar upon my arrival and sat outside. In the 45 minutes that I was there no one attended to me so I left. I ended up going to Dros which was a great move- I had a wonderful meal and the wait staff were excellent.

Pot & Barrel Pub and Restaurant

Reviewed By Steffen K

The upstairs restaurant offers standard South African "Spur" style fare with a Namaqualand twist with a view over the main road from the terrace. It was reasonably priced and the fish and salads were prepared just right. On hot evenings, eating on the terrace is possibly cooler than inside.

Reviewed By calboy2

While I kept my expectations low given the restaurant in a small northern cape Town still I managed to be disappointed. I had the most overcooked chicken ever. Barely edible steak was tough. Did not remind of traditional BBQ from Texas, US. Drinks are plentiful though!

I stopped over here on my way to Cape Town with my sons, who were about to start their studies at university. I ad booked for 3 persons, but got a triple room with no less than beds for 7 and a baby cot! Very clean and the aircon was necessary, as it was 35 degrees outside. Jackie, the manager was super helpful and arranged secure parking and sorted out our room for us.Thank you very much for this very nice review Looking forward to have you at Horse and Mill again
